I keep learning this lesson over and over. If I “prepare” the night before, I start my day in a peaceful, patient mindset. It seems like I have so much more time. I get more done AND spend more quality time with the kids instead of cranky time. I priortize well. I fit my workout in.
It’s hard though. We get the kids to bed. The house is often a disaster. I’m too tired to clean up or do anything. I feel like watching my backlog of shows on the DVR, like my husband gets to do.
Last night, I did ignore the house and did some work on the computer and then went to bed. I struggled all day today to pick up yesterday’s messes while today’s added up. Tonight, I tucked the kids in, put my sneakers on and got in speed cleaning/organizing mode.
So the house is by no means detailed but at least the dishes are done and everything is picked up. I even have my coffee pot set to turn on in the a.m. AND my hubbie is folding all the laundry while he’s watching t.v. 🙂
I’m looking forward to a wonderful day tomorrow!
